**REMAINDER(Number,Divisor)**

OR

**MOD (Number,Divisor)**

- is a single number or set of numbers, and
- is any real number.
- REMAINDER(),returns the remainder from division.

## Description

- This function gives the remainder of the number after dividing with given number. This is similar to function
- When we divide two integers we will get the result like this: with remainder . Here is the dividend, is the divisor, is the Quotient and is the remainder.So .
- This function will return the result as error when the value is 0.
- Suppose the value of and with same sign either '+' or '-',then the result is also displayed with the same sign.
- But if and are with different signs,one positive and other negative, then the result will have sign only.

## ZOS

- The syntax is to calculate remainder of the given numbers in ZOS is .
- and are any real numbers.

- For e.g.,REMAINDER(10,2),REMAINDER(50.2,-4)

## Examples

- =REMAINDER(7,2)=1
- =REMAINDER(-11,-3)=-2
- =REMAINDER(75,5)=0
- =REMAINDER(12,-4)=0
- =REMAINDER(85,-9)=-5
- =REMAINDER(-52,7)=4
- =REMAINDER(0,9)=0
- =REMAINDER(9,0)=#N/A (DIVISOR == 0)
- =REMAINDER(5.5,2)=1.5

For an array of numbers/dividends, a table with remainder values is displayed as follows -

- REMAINDER(11..15,4)

Number | Divisor | MOD |
---|---|---|

11 | 4 | 3 |

12 | 4 | 0 |

13 | 4 | 1 |

14 | 4 | 2 |

15 | 4 | 3 |

- REMAINDER([66,34,21],8)

Number | Divisor | MOD |
---|---|---|

66 | 8 | 2 |

34 | 8 | 2 |

21 | 8 | 5 |
